It is not often you get a chance to watch a film in working hours.
Hidden Battles formed part of the programme of my employer's annual conference this afternoon and I was there to tweet about it and, in particular, the expert panel discussion that followed. (One of the leading military psychologists who took part, incidentally, was Simon Hughes' brother.)
The film was moving precisely because it took such a cool look at the effect that killing has upon forces personnel. And, as Professor Jamie Hacker Hughes said, 20,000 people leave the British Armed Forces every year.
